Medical Malpractice

Protecting Patients From Harmful Medicine

When it comes to the practice of modern medicine, our system of the trusted physician-patient relationship was replaced by impersonal medical management and high-volume health care. Too many patients today are harmed by their own health care providers, as well as the system their providers are forced to work in. Clients come to us because their doctors and hospitals failed to follow required standards of medicine, which resulted in life long injuries or sometimes even death. When a Patient is seriously injured through the negligence of medical providers, the effects on the person and family are devastating. In each case, there are always legitimate concerns about mounting medical bills and the long-term effects of serious injury.
 
To make matters worse, doctors will often insist the situation was just one of those unavoidable complications. Almost all medical malpractice cases require the injured individual to prove how the health provider caused their injury. Therefore, it is extremely important that you speak to a Board Certified Trial Lawyer with experience in field of medical malpractice. Proving up your case and showing what actually went on behind closed hospital doors is a daunting challenge and should only be undertaken by a lawyer with experience in the field of medical negligence.

Taking The Right Approach - Advocating for Community Safety

The Kemmy Lawyers spend a considerable amount of time in the courtroom, and in front of juries. However, going to trial can always be a risk. In recent years, insurance companies and other corporations have spent billions to run a remarkable propaganda campaign against trial lawyers and their clients. They have been so effective that jurors are now often suspicious of injured victims who have hired a trial lawyer to hold the wrongdoer accountable. However, with the right approach, we have found that when jurors actually hear about a legitimate injury caused by the violation of basic safety rules that we all depend on, they are fair and just with their verdict.

Tom Kemmy has spent more than 30 years successfully representing patients and families injured from medical negligence, and we are determined to fight for the highest possible compensation due under the law. Early in Tom's career he was an insurance defense counsel and was hired to defend doctors, nurses and hospitals. Tom's knowledge of the defense side of litigation proves beneficial when representing injured patients today.
